No Longer Waiting
This installation was inspired by artist Roberta Marks Buddhist practice. The chair represents a self portrait of the artist, and the ball represents a zafu, or meditation cushion. No Longer Waiting is a personal mantra: “I am no longer waiting for peace, for peace is here, in the moment, I am in the now”.
Dedicated to friend and sculptor Terry Thommes
Roberta Marks has moved among several mediums of expression since earning her BFA and MFA degrees: painting, clay, constructions, collage, and sculpture. Her recent travels to Asia have greatly influenced her new work, which contains deliberately mixed religious imagery.
The artist lives in Key West, Florida.
